Rams running back Todd Gurley II is having quite a game in the cold weather, eclipsing the 200-yard rushing mark midway through the fourth quarter at Denver.

Gurley has scored two touchdowns.

Baltimore left guard Alex Lewis has been carted off the field in Nashville after being strapped to a backboard.

Lewis walked away from the pile after a 2-yard run by Gus Edwards on second down, then went down to the ground. Trainers quickly surrounded him, and a cart came onto the field. He was gingerly lifted with a backboard slid underneath him before being loaded onto the cart inside the first minute of the fourth quarter.

Several Ravens and Titans came over to check on Lewis, and the guard was moving his hands as the cart left the field.

Bradley Bozeman replaced Lewis at left guard.

Lewis has a neck injury but is moving all his extremities. He is being transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Titans left guard Quinton Spain has hurt his right shoulder in the third quarter against the Baltimore Ravens.

Spain went down on a 1-yard run by Derrick Henry with 6:51 left in the third quarter. He was able to walk to the sideline on his own with his right arm hanging gingerly at his side.

On the play after Spain left, Ravens safety Tony Jefferson sacked Marcus Mariota for Baltimore's seventh sack of the game. That puts the Ravens three away from a single-game sack record.

The Titans trail Baltimore 21-0.

Titans starting linebacker Derrick Morgan now has been ruled out after hurting a shoulder in the first half.

Spain was replaced by Corey Levin on the Titans' next drive.

The Baltimore Ravens are dominating and embarrassing the Tennessee Titans through the first half.

The Ravens lead 14-0 at halftime and have outgained Tennessee 192-69. Baltimore has converted 8 of 9 third downs, and about the only thing not to go the Ravens' way in the first half came after officials put 4 seconds back on the clock. Justin Tucker lined up for a 60-yard field goal attempt that was well short. It didn't count because of a false start.

Baltimore also has sacked Marcus Mariota six times, leaving home fans booing Tennessee.

First-year head coach Mike Vrabel and the Titans will be tested for a comeback. The Ravens have not allowed a touchdown in the second half this season.

Broncos backup quarterback Chad Kelly's first snap in the regular season was taking a knee.

Kelly replaced starter Case Keenum with 11 seconds left in the first half with Keenum on the sideline being evaluated for a concussion. Keenum was cleared after being sacked and thrown down by the Los Angeles Rams in an earlier series.

As Kelly trotted onto the field, he received a loud cheer from the fans. Keenum and the Broncos offense struggled as they trailed 13-3 at halftime.

The Tennessee Titans simply cannot block the Baltimore Ravens so far in the first half.

The Ravens already have sacked Marcus Mariota six times with Za'Darius Smith having two against a Titans' offensive line with all of its starters available.

Baltimore came into the game leading the NFL with 34 tackles for loss, including 15 sacks.

Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp was carted off the field with a left knee injury after being taken down on a horse-collar tackle by Broncos safety Darian Stewart.

Kupp picked up 12 yards along the Broncos' sideline when he was brought down by Stewart, who was given a 15-yard penalty. Kupp stayed down as trainers examined him. His quarterback Jared Goff came over to check on him before he was loaded onto a cart.

Kupp missed the second half last week against Seattle after being diagnosed with a concussion.

His return is listed as questionable.

4:20 p.m.

Rams quarterback Jared Goff didn't take long to heat up on a 25-degree day. He completed three passes for 63 yards to move the Los Angeles Rams into field goal range, a 26-yard chip shot from Cairo Santos in the first quarter against the Denver Broncos.

The 25 degrees at kickoff marks the second-coldest at home in September/October in Broncos team history. The coldest for this time of year was 22 degrees on Oct. 12, 1969, against Oakland.

4:10 p.m.

The Dolphins and Bears are headed to overtime tied at 28-28.

The Dolphins rallied from a 21-10 deficit in the final 16 minutes thanks to two long touchdowns on short receptions by Albert Wilson.

The Bears' Tarik Cohen lost a fumble at their 45 with 1:52 left and the score tied, but the Dolphins failed to get a first down and punted, which forced the overtime.

3:45 p.m.

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has passed Joe Montana for 16th place on the NFL's career passing touchdowns list.

Ryan hooked up with Tevin Coleman on a 6-yard scoring play for his 274th career TD.

3:40 p.m.

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr appeared to injure his left arm and was undergoing further evaluation after being sacked by the Seahawks' Jarran Reed with 8:52 remaining in the game.

Carr, sacked by Shamar Stephen on the previous play, was dropped for a 1-yard loss by Reed on third down and immediately sat up with his right hand over his upper left arm. He was escorted to the sideline and examined in a medical tent as backup A.J. McCarron began warming up.

The Raiders avoided the shutout on the ensuing play, with Matt McCrane making a 43-yard field goal to trim Seattle's lead to 27-3.

Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen left the game late in the third quarter when he suffered an elbow injury. On a pass attempt to wide receiver Zay Jones with less than 3 minutes remaining in the third quarter, Allen appeared to take a hit on the back of his throwing elbow.

After throwing a few warmup passes on the sideline, Allen put his cap on and Buffalo announced his return as questionable. He was replaced by Nathan Peterman.

2:55 p.m.

Falcons rookie wide receiver Calvin Ridley will not return after leaving the game against Tampa Bay in the second quarter with an ankle injury. Ridley leads the team with six touchdown catches.

Justin Hardy took over as the Falcons' No. 3 receiver, behind Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu, following Ridley's second-quarter injury.

Atlanta defensive tackle Jack Crawford returned after leaving the game in the first quarter with neck and head injuries. Crawford was the fill-in starter for Grady Jarrett, who missed his second straight game with a sprained ankle.

2:40 p.m.

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has been sacked twice, once losing a fumble, and would have been sacked on two other occasions if they had not been negated by penalties against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Raiders even called a quick sneak for Carr on fourth-and-inches from the Seahawks' 41-yard line that failed to gain the required yardage.

Seattle, up 17-0 at halftime, has made protecting Carr a challenge for the Raiders. With starting left guard Kelechi Osemele out with a knee injury, his replacement, Jon Feliciano, left the game late in the second quarter after injuring his ribs, forcing Justin Murray to take his first snaps on offense with the team.

— Zac Boyer reporting from London.

2:35 p.m.

The Minnesota Vikings have rediscovered a running game on their way to a 13-10 halftime lead over Arizona.

Latavius Murray has their first rushing touchdown of the season and 66 yards on nine carries at the break. That's more yards by one player in one half than the entire team has been averaging per game over the first five weeks. Murray is in the featured role, with Dalvin Cook out for a third time in the last four games because of a hamstring injury.

The passing attack isn't going as well for the Vikings. Kirk Cousins has thrown an interception and lost a fumble on a sack by Chandler Jones that was returned for a touchdown by Budda Baker. The Cardinals have three sacks, four quarterback hits and five passes broken up.

2:25 p.m.

Falcons rookie wide receiver Calvin Ridley, who leads the team with six touchdown catches, has an ankle injury and is questionable to return against Tampa Bay.

Justin Hardy took over as the Falcons' No. 3 receiver, behind Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu, following Ridley's second-quarter injury.

The Falcons' defense, already racked by injuries, suffered another hit when defensive tackle Jack Crawford left the game with neck and head injuries. Crawford was the fill-in starter for Grady Jarrett, who missed his second straight game with a sprained ankle.

2:10 p.m.

The Tampa Bay defense is having another rough day.

Already giving up more points per game than any team in the NFL, the Buccaneers have surrendered touchdowns on Atlanta's first three possessions to give the one-win Falcons a 21-6 lead midway through the second quarter.

Atlanta has put together scoring drives of 75, 86 and 58 yards, which is sure to turn up the heat even more on Bucs defensive coordinator Mike Smith. The former Falcons coach is calling plays from the press box at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

The Bucs defense has now given up nine touchdowns and two field goals on the last 14 possessions by their opponents. They have forced only two punts, and one other possession ended with a kneeldown at the end of the game.

1:55 p.m.

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper left the game against the Seattle Seahawks with 13:40 remaining in the second quarter after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit from strong safety Bradley McDougald.

Cooper failed to pull in a low pass from quarterback Derek Carr at the Raiders' 18-yard line and, after the ball fell from his fingertips, was hit in the right side of his head by McDougald, who appeared to lead with the crown of his helmet.

McDougald was not penalized for the play, and Cooper, who lay on the field for nearly two minutes, was immediately taken to the locker room.

1:45 p.m.

Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman's 19-game interception drought is over. Norman got his first interception since 2016 courtesy of former Carolina Panthers teammate Cam Newton.

Norman picked off Newton on a third-and-17 play early in the second quarter with Washington already up 14-0. Newton floated the ball into the air hoping to get it to Devin Funchess, but Norman and another Redskins defensive back were much closer.

It was Norman's first interception since Dec. 24, 2016, against the Chicago Bears.

Panthers safety Eric Reid again took a knee during the national anthem as Carolina visited Washington.

Reid, who was signed as a free agent by the Panthers on Sept. 27, resumed his tradition of kneeling during the anthem before his season debut with Carolina last week.

In Miami, Dolphins receivers Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson kneeled during the anthem, and defensive end Robert Quinn stood with a raised fist, as they've done at earlier games this season.

A snow game in October? No time for cold feet.

Bundle up.

The Los Angeles Rams and Denver Broncos will definitely be playing it cool Sunday with the temperature in the Mile High City at kickoff expected to be around 25 degrees. The forecast is calling for flurries into the afternoon.

The field was covered by a tarp hours before the game on a day that reminded everyone in town that ski season is right around the corner.

As far as coldest games in Denver history, it doesn't come close to making the list. The most frigid game in the city was Dec. 10, 1972, against San Diego when it was 9 degrees. Last season, Denver hosted Kansas City on Dec. 31 when it was 17 degrees.

The Rams can take some cold comfort in this: It's 65 degrees back in Los Angeles.

1 p.m.

New York Jets defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers, dealing with an illness, is with the team for its game against the Indianapolis Colts.

The Jets tweeted out a photo of Rodgers standing next to coach Todd Bowles on the field at MetLife Stadium on Sunday and announced that "Coach Rodgers is in the house!"

It was not certain if Rodgers would be in his usual role of running the Jets' defense during the game, or if Bowles would do so as he did last week in New York's 34-16 win over Denver.

The 49-year-old Rodgers is dealing with what Bowles has called a "serious" illness. Rodgers had a medical appointment on Oct. 4 and was not with the team for practice the following day, when a somber Bowles revealed that Rogers was dealing with an illness.

Rodgers has not been at practice since. Bowles said Rodgers would find out the results of tests sometime in the next few days.

Seattle faces the Oakland Raiders in Wembley Stadium on Sunday for the NFL's first London game of the season, and the Seahawks' first regular-season appearance overseas.

Pete Carroll will be looking to break a tie with Mike Holmgren (90) as the winningest coach in Seahawks franchise history, and Russell Wilson is 25-6 after a loss for Seattle (2-3) — for the best record for a quarterback since the merger.

The Raiders (1-4) have struggled in Jon Gruden's return to coaching, especially on defense since trading star pass rusher Khalil Mack just before the start of the season. Oakland's defense is ranked 30th, has the fewest QB pressures (29), is tied for the fewest sacks (six) and the third-fewest takeaways (five).

The biggest matchup of the day is the prime-time meeting involving Tom Brady and the New England Patriots (3-2) hosting the Kansas City Chiefs (5-0) and their young quarterback sensation Patrick Mahomes.
